I used Ledyba for a while, but dropped her soon enough. She wouldn't do a lot of damage. The rest of the team looks good though!

I only used Ledian because I didn't have many options and I didn't want to use Flying types that I had used in other games in my ultimate challenge.

Hey kiddos. Sorry there hasn't been an event this month like I said there would be. Things just came up and there wasn't any time to get them worked out. But GT9 will definitely have an event that I hope you all enjoy. I hope you like the lazy title change. It wasn't Rogue's birthday anymore so you know, I felt like I had to change it, but nothing came to mind so yeah. I haven't worked on a challenge in a while. :( Sigh.

I was literally about to post in this thread about how I felt special because my birthday was still in the title. Also, I haven't been able to do any challenges myself lately, so don't feel bad about it. :( I haven't been able to find the time.

Didn't think of that actually. Although at that point I'll still want White 2 since Black 2 will be used for my main playthrough. I'll probably just end up getting White due to not wanting to wait.

I'll get Black 2 in Japanese and both in English. I guess my English B2 will be my storage game and the other two will be for playing through over and over. Weehee.

I usually don't like to do challenges on my first playthrough of a new game. I wanna just enjoy the game as is first. XD

That's the exact same with me xD
I usually choose one version to have just a regular playthrough and eventually buy the other version for challenges. It just seems weird to me to do challenges the very first time; I just enjoy being able to pick any of my favorite Pokemon and have a nice, easy, smooth first playthrough with the ability to easily explore every aspect of the game.

I usually have one or two games each generation become storage and then everything else is free range for regular playthroughs or challenges. For example! My HeartGold, Diamond, and Platinum are storage games in gen IV. My Pearl, SoulSilver, other HeartGold, and other Diamond and for playing through. n___n I need to make Platinum not storage anymore though, cause it's so good to play through. YES I have too many games lol. That's what happens when you're a PokePackrat, RNGer, and challenger. :(

Does anyone make up stories and such for their characters? I usually do, especially for challenges because I like to think of a reason as to why they're doing this challenge. To be a gym leader? Was it a dare? etc. Like the Challoween one, my character and his rivals (played by Bianca and Cheren obv) played along with this creepy story they heard about a guy that made it to the Pokemon League on Halloween. And so they decided they'd all go through the region to see if it'd happen. Though, rivals being rivals, they both picked on Cedric (my character) for his odd and creepy choice in Pokemon (because of the criteria your Pokemon had to meet for the challenge) though ended up prevailing and proving more than what they had anticipated at the Pokemon League. HURR.

I usually do the same. But I think my first playthrough of a 5th gen game was a green monocolor on White for the event that was going on at the time. I didn't really have time to do a normal playthrough first, so I decided to just do the monocolor anyway.

I do like doing challenges. My first Black run was a monotype Grass run. Now it would be a good time to finally finish my mono water UMC, since I only need to do Black still.

Speaking of a UMC, what do you guys think about ultimate challenges now? Will BW and B2W2 both have to be included because they're so different? Or just pick one out of the 4? I never do ultimates, but I'd like to know y'alls opinion.

I don't do ultimate challenges either, but I see them as doing the challenge in each region, and I don't think that Unova in B2W2 has enough differences to warrant an addition to ultimate challenges. Plus, you don't want to make everyone who has already completed an ultimate challenge have to play 2 extra games (BW and B2W2) in one generation.

That's how I feel about it too. Though, if I were to ever do an ultimate, I'd probably choose B2W2 over BW just because there is more Pokemon selection. ;)

Region is the key word here, so my vote is that either BW or B2W2 would qualify for the fifth game.

Yeah, I'm waiting to see what kind of Pokemon selection there will be in the B2W2 games before I continue the rest of my monotypes. All I gotta say is, there better be a Lucky Egg somewhere!

I think only one of them is needed, seeing as it is region based. It also allows some people to do ultimate solo challenges easier.

Now that my exams are over, I can finally get back onto challenges!

I think either BW or Bw2 should be done. Same region etc. And I tend to use onyl Pokemon from that region in a monotype. So yeah, wouldn't make a very big difference then :3

If this helps, Serebii has a completed B2W2 Unova Regional PokeDex right here.

Also, now that I'm trying to be more active at PC I'm also going to start doing more challenges. I'm not sure if I should start all new challenges or try to pick up where I left up on some of them.

I was also thinking that some new and interesting challenges could come out of Pokemon Conquest. I'm not quite sure what type of challenges yet, but I think a monotype challenge on Conquest would be extremely difficult. It would be just a regular monotype - the Pokemon that all of your Warlords use must be of the same type. An exception to this may be Oichi, at least until you can link with new Pokemon.
